I'm now in USA coming from Spain.

I already have an unlocked smartphone.

I would like to have a contract phone. What are my options? Do I need to buy a phone to get a local sim card?

    Can you clarify your question? Last time, I walked into a telecom store and they seemed very willing to sell me anything they had including SIM cards. What is the exact problem you are facing? Have you been rejected and on what grounds? – nvoigt Jan 27 '17 at 13:31

I don't think you're going to get one. The problem is you have no credit rating in the US and no income in the US. That basically limits you to pay-as-you-go service.

  • @biotech It takes time to build your credit rating, though. – Loren Pechtel Jan 29 '17 at 4:21
